My contribution to the day will be “Chase Your Own Success (Not Someone Else’s)” which is about writer self-care in the days of social media. I was really pleased by the audience response at the GCLS Conference in July and am truly happy to be presenting it again.
Chase Your Own Success
Do you ever feel as if you’re not doing the writing life right? Everyone else seems to have more or better. Sales, reviews, awards, nods from VIPs, money, expertise, word counts, buzz, fans, acclaim, on and on.
Social media amplifies the message: success is something other people are having all around you. Should you change your vision? How can you replicate their success for yourself?
It’s time to take a step back. This workshop will help you define success in your own terms and give you tools to silence the negative perceptions that sap your creativity. Chase your own success – not someone else’s.
